The Medi-Dose® Group, known for its innovative solid and liquid oral unit dose packaging systems, has always had deep roots---family roots. This is not surprising since Medi-Dose began as a small family business. Medi-Dose was founded in 1971 when Milton Braverman, a former pharmaceutical company Territory Manager, formed his own company. He was acutely aware of the requirements of hospital pharmacy. His sons, Robert and Mark, continue the tradition for The Medi-Dose Group. Robert, Director of Marketing, remembered, "My dad saw the need for inexpensive, manual unit dose packaging that would allow a hospital to convert from traditional dispensing. He developed a system to package, handle and dispense predetermined amounts of medication so they would be accessible for one regular dose… and along the way, he became the personification of the ‘American Dream’ ”.
While developing Medi-Dose, we were often asked for other products. "Hey… why don't you have... ?" "Yo, I need... Can you get it for me?" So, we started EPS® , Inc. We were asked about liquid packaging to complement our solid oral systems. So, we developed TampAlerT®. We were asked about IV preparation. So we developed a line of IV additive disposable accessories. Filters? Yes! Tapes & Labels? Done! Trays, totes and bins? You got it! Bags? Absolutely! And that is how the EPS product line grew to what it is today.
Medication packaged and dispensed in syringes, ampules, tubing, suppositories and odd shaped bottles often pose unique labeling challenges for pharmacists and nurses. Conventionally shaped labels often prove inadequate for adhering to irregular shapes. Additionally, the same vital labeling that's placed on the medication being dispensed needs to be recorded on the original medication bottle or package as well as the patient record.
MILT® Makes It Easy!
Medi-Dose Information labeling Technology
With bar coding becoming an ever-more-important aspect of pharmacy practice, Medi-Dose recently released its latest enhanced computer software… the new MILT® by Medi-Dose program (for Medi-Dose Information Labeling Technology and also named for the company’s founder). “My father”, relates Robert Braverman, “wanted bar coding on medication packaging early on to minimize the potential for medication error. So we’ve been constantly improving on our programs in order to better meet this vital pharmacy challenge and need.”
MILT® the dynamic new unit dose labeling software for the Medi-Dose® and EPS LiquidDose® packaging systems, offers innovative bar coding, increased security and enhanced medication identification awareness - all for a surprisingly affordable price. Using advanced technology, MILT® by Medi-Dose® makes it easy to achieve optimum accurate, protection and performance for all your solid and liquid unit dose syringe and ampule labeling needs.
